I’m a painting lover, though I’m a bad rookie at it. Impressionism, Renaissance, Pre-Raphaelites and Barbizon School are my favorite genres. I love a lot more, mainly focused on watercolor and oil painting. 

I would appreciate any related supplement  to this list ლ ( ◕  ᗜ  ◕ ) ლ. 

Thanks to all I mentioned in this post, for sharing inspiring art.

'BuckWild' Star Shain Gandee Found Dead

Sad news for Buckwild fans this morning, as it was confirmed that Shain Gandee (21) from MTV’s reality show was found dead in his truck along with his uncle, David Gandee (48) and another unidentified body.

Shain and his uncle were last seen at 3am Sunday morning at a local bar, telling people that they were about to go 4-wheeling. 

Hours later his family issued a missing person’s report and were soon notified on his sad condition. 

Cast members of ‘BuckWild’ tweeted condolences to Shain and the Gandee family,

@JoeyBuckWild: “Sissonville will never be the same. I miss you brother.”

 @CaraFnParrish: “This is the emptiest I’ve ever felt. Please pray for Dale and Loretta.”

@MTV_Anna: “My heart is broken.”

@mtvshae: “Breathe in. Breathe out. Repeat. Just going through the motions. Please pray for Shains close friends and family.”

@MTVs_Katie: “Everything doesn’t happen for a reason I don’t know why people say that.”

@Tyler_MTV: “God is with us always. Even though our buddy passed, he’s in a better place. God is taking care of Shain now. #PrayForGandeeFamily

MTV later released a statement:

"We are shocked and saddened by the terrible news about Shain Gandee, and those involved in this tragic incident. We are waiting for more information but at this time, our main concern is for the Gandee family and their friends.”

Story developing…

Nick Jonas may be a guitar instructor in the future.

While in North Carolina last month shooting his new film “Careful What You Wish For” Nick Jonas came upon to two young boys, Joseph and Noah, who were playing on their guitar and mandolin.

One of the youngsters took up the courage and played his favorite tune for Nick. 

Nick then had a turn playing the guitar showing his skills to his protege’s. 

“Nice guitar, I like it a lot.” He complimented. “Sounds better than mine.”

Nick then thanked the boys for letting him play and signed their guitars, that was not caught on camera.

Dad and son duo, Will Smith and Jaden Smith are closer than you think. 

While in Thailand to promote their film After Earth, host Woody of “The Woody Show” asked about their off-screen relationship. “I sense there’s a distance in terms of affection between the general and his son. Is it like that at home, or no?”

“Nah, we’re very affectionate,” said Will. “He even tried to kiss me once,” Jaden says, speaking way too soon because his dad planted a kiss right on his lips. 

Check out the clip at (4:50).

Join the discussion. Was this weird or innocent dad and son affection?

Demi Lovato Urges Fans To Go Make-Up Free

Yesterday, the X Factor judge posted a make-up free picture on twitter and asked fans to join her. 

“Ladies, be brave today.. take off your make-up and stop using those filters!! WE are beautiful!!!”

Millions of fans then tweeted their fresh faces and Demi retweeted several of them. 

She even encouraged fans to brush off the “haters”,

“To all my Lovatics -  if you come across haters, show them love. We don’t bully back or retaliate. That’s not what we are about!!”

From all the negativity we see stars do everyday, it’s really refreshing to see someone take advantage of their fame to help young girls across the world.

Kudos to Demi Lovato!

Well, the fun has stopped and now they are charged with over $13,000 in damages to the house!

“They had to drain the jacuzzi - completely drain it. And there was a rim of scum along the top of the water on the leather interiors. When they emptied it out, the stain didn’t come out, so they charged us for that. It was $13,175 in total.”
